[ELI5]Can echography be harmful for bats ?


I stumbled on a funny meme of a vet giving an echography to a bad and I wanted to know if the ultrasounds of the echography could be harmful to the bat (since they use echolocation).

In: 1


The frequency of ultra sound is substantially higher than the frequency bats use for their echolocation, like 10-50 times higher.

This means it’s really unlikely that ultrasound would confuse a bat because it’s not the kind of sound it’s paying attention to.
